The Edusave Character Award (ECHA) 2014 for our students is opened for nominations from now till 26 August 2014.

The award also supports the school’s efforts in nurturing students of good character and values, who are active contributors and concerned citizens: Youth of Character, Keen to Serve.


The objectives are as follows:

  • To send clear and strong signal of the importance that MOE places on character and values, on par with the achievements in the academic domain; and
  • To recognise outstanding students in each school who are exemplary in character, and who can be a role model to inspire others.
